How They're Made - HRE Wheels Factory Tour
A private tour of the HRE Wheels factory in Vista, California. This 20-minute walkthrough shows the entire process as shown to me by my friend Antonio who works for HRE. This 60,000 square foot facility is run 6 days a week to keep up with demand and this video shows a glimpse into each part of the process. Milling, prepping, brushing by hand, quality control, assembly of 3-piece wheels, powder coating, cleaning and repair. The HRE Wheels factory is also home to Akrapovic Exhaust products in the USA so some of that inventory is shown as well.
